Counter Strike: Global Offensive Trailer

Counter Strike: Global Offensive will be available in 2012 as a downloadable title for PC, Mac, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. Just as Valve did with Portal 2, Counter Strike GO will feature Steam on PS3 allowing for cross platform play with PC, Mac, and PS3 players all playing together. Xbox is a closed system, so no Steam for 360 players.

Those of using a Dualshock may have a hard time though, but it'll be a good challenge. Hit the jump to see a gameplay trailer. … [Read more...]
